Nadda Slams Opposition for Fielding K Suresh for LS Speakers Post; Reminds Congress of Emergency

New Delhi (PTI): BJP president JP Nadda reminded the Congress on Tuesday of the dark days of Emergency as he slammed the opposition for fielding K Suresh against the NDA's Om Birla in the election for Lok Sabha speaker.Addressing an event at the BJP headquarters in New Delhi on the 49th anniversary of the Emergency, imposed by the Indira Gandhi government in 1975, Nadda accused the Congress of hypocrisy and doublespeak on the issue of the Lok Sabha speaker's election and said there is no space for democracy in the mindset of the main opposition party. Nadda asked if there had been any election for the Lok Sabha speaker where the opposition put a condition that the deputy speaker be decided first before reaching a consensus on the chair's position. Congress MP Suresh is the opposition's candidate for the Lok Sabha chair against Birla of the ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA), which has a majority in the Lower House. Nadda said the Congress, which was vying for the deputy speaker's post in the name of tradition, itself did not follow the norm in states governed by it. The Congress has its speaker and deputy speaker in the assemblies of Telangana and Karnataka while INDIA bloc constituents the Trinamool Congress (TMC), DMK and the Left have their own speakers and deputy speakers in West Bengal, Tamil Nadu and Kerala assemblies, respectively, he said. Nadda said it was the Congress government under the then-prime minister Indira Gandhi that had hrottled democracy by imposing the Emergency on June 25, 1975, and carried out immense atrocities on those who protested. Those who insulted and ignored the Constitution several times have declared themselves as protectors of the Constitution, he charged. Nadda recalled the days of the Emergency and said the country's democracy is standing firm today due to the sacrifices that people made to protect it at that time. About 9,000 people were picked up at night and put in jail. Not a single prominent leader was spared. There is a long list of leaders, including Morarji Desai, Atal Bihari Vajpayee and LK Advani, who were in jail for more than 19 months. Their only fault was that they raised their voices to strengthen democracy. Every effort was made to gag the media, he said. Those with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) also joined the struggle, which began in 1974, to save democracy as well as end poverty, corruption and nepotism, he said. About 1.40 lakh people were arrested under the Maintenance of Internal Security Act (MISA) and the Defence of India Rules (DIR). Of them, 75,000 to 80,000 people were those who followed our ideology, he said. Nadda said democracy was estored in 1977 when a dictatorial government of the Congress was unseated from power in the Lok Sabha elections. Rahul Gandhi does not know how democracy was throttled during those days. He doesn't know much about the (country's) history as he has inadequately studied the subject. Perhaps he doesn't even have much interest in studying. I don't know how many degrees he has got, the BJP chief said, taking potshots at the Congress leader. These days, these leaders roam around carrying copies of the Constitution. They should apologise to the country and also Mahatma Gandhi (imposition of Emergency) by visiting his memorial at Raj Ghat, he added. On June 25, 1975, Indira Gandhi made the announcement of the imposition of Emergency in a broadcast on All India Radio, shortly after the Supreme Court granted a conditional stay to a Allahabad High Court verdict declaring her election to the Lok Sabha as null and void. The 21 months was known for forced mass sterlisations, censorship of the press, suspension of constitutional rights and centralisation of power.

Karnataka Milk Price Hike Sparks Political Outrage

Karnataka Milk Price Hike Sparks Political Outrage The Karnataka Milk Federation (KMF) on Tuesday announced an imminent hike in milk prices slated to take effect from June 26. This decision has ignited a political storm, with the opposition vehemently holding the Siddaramaiah-led government accountable. In contrast, the government maintains that the decision is entirely KMF's independent action. This escalation in milk prices follows closely on the heels of the state government's recent hike in sales tax on fuel, which saw petrol prices increase by Rs 3 per litre and diesel by Rs 3.5 per litre. The compounded impact on household expenses has fueled public dissatisfaction. According to KMF's statement, the price hike is accompanied by an increase in quantity, with each packet offering an additional 50 ml of milk. This adjustment is ostensibly in response to surging milk storage levels, currently nearing one crore litres across district milk unions. The price for a 500 ml toned milk packet from the Nandini brand will jump from Rs 22 to Rs 24, now containing 550 ml. Similarly, a 1000 ml packet will be priced at Rs 44, inclusive of an extra 50 ml. Sharp reactions from opposition parties have framed this price hike as a burden on the economically vulnerable. The criticism ranged from labeling the hike as insensitive to outright accusations of political maneuvering. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah redirected accountability, stating, The milk prices have been hiked by KMF, not the government. We are still comparing state-wide pricing strategies. He further implied that Karnataka's milk prices remain competitive relative to other states. Opposition Leader R. Ashoka criticized the decision, suggesting it was ill-timed and burdensome for the state's poor and middle-class citizens already contending with rising fuel and vegetable prices. BJP Karnataka President B Y Vijayendra echoed these sentiments, arguing that the decision disproportionately impacts struggling families. He accused the Congress government of leveraging essential commodity prices for political retribution. Amidst critiques, the Janata Dal (Secular) party chimed in, questioning whether the price hike benefits would truly reach milk producers or merely pad KMF's coffers.

Congress will respond appropriately to ministers pushing for 3 more Dy CMs in Karnataka: Shivakumar

Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister, DK Shivakumar (ANI file image) Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister, DK Shivakumar (ANI file image) Mangaluru: Seemingly expressing his displeasure against ministers demanding three more deputy chief minister posts in Karnataka, state Congress President D K Shivakumar on Tuesday said the party would respond to them appropriately. Currently, Shivakumar from the Vokkaliga community is the only DCM in the Siddaramaiah-led cabinet. Some of the ministers in the cabinet have been pitching for DCM posts to be given to leaders from Veerashaiva-Lingayat, SC/ST and minority communities. You people (media) put in news if someone says something. Why should I say no to people who are happy (by appearing in news) ... Let anyone make any demand, the party will respond to them appropriately. Simple, Shivakumar told reporters here in response to a question. Asked whether there is a plan in the party to have more deputy chief ministers, he said, You please meet Mallikarjun Kharge (AICC president) and our in-charge general secretary or ask the chief minister. A section within the Congress is said to be of the opinion that the statement by ministers seeking three more DCM posts was part of a plan by Siddaramaiah's camp to keep Shivakumar in check, amid talks that he might seek the CM post after two-and-a-half years of this government's tenure, and to counter his influence both in the government and the party. The ministers -- Co-Operation Minister K N Rajanna, Housing Minister B Z Zameer Ahmed Khan, Public Works Minister Satish Jarkiholi and few others -- who have pitched for three more DCMs are considered close to Siddaramaiah. The Congress had decided that Shivakumar will be the only deputy CM amid stiff competition between him and Siddaramaiah for the chief minister's post after the assembly election results in May last year. It was also said to be a commitment made by the Congress leadership to Shivakumar while convincing him to give up his claim for the CM post and to take up the role of deputy chief minister. Asked whether he or his brother and former MP D K Suresh would contest in the assembly bypolls from Channapatna, Shivakumar, who has recently been making repeated visits to the segment, did not want to give any direct response but indicated that he may contest. My brother is not interested, as people have decided to give Suresh a rest (through defeat in Lok Sabha polls), but there is a desire to work for the party, as people there (Channapatna) have trusted us and given us (Congress) about 85,000 votes (in Lok Sabha polls. We have to save them, he said. People have given Congress power in the state by giving 136 seats (including independents), he said. We have to save the people there (in Channapatna). Nothing has happened there, despite big people having enjoyed power from there, people have a feeling that nothing has been done for them. So, we want to do something. Earlier too we have done our bit. When I was the minister, a part of Channapatna was under my constituency earlier. It is the right time to serve the people and the poor there. The Channapatna bypoll is being held because the seat fell vacant following the election of its representative, JD(S) leader and now Union Minister H D Kumaraswamy, to the Lok Sabha in the recent elections. The byelection schedule for this assembly seat is yet to be announced by the Election Commission. Though there were talks earlier that Suresh, who lost from Bangalore Rural Lok Sabha segment, may be fielded in Channapatna, speculations are now rife in political circles, especially the grand old party, that Shivakumar may enter the fray to avenge his brother's defeat and to re-establish his clout in the region. According to sources, if Shivakumar contests and wins from Channapatna, he may vacate the Kanakapura assembly seat that he currently represents for Suresh to contest from. Both Channapatna and Kanakapura are part of the Vokkaliga-dominated Ramanagara district, which comes under the Bangalore Rural Lok Sabha segment from where Kumaraswamy's brother-in-law and eminent cardiologist C N Manjunath won as a BJP candidate as part of an arrangement between alliance partners BJP and JD(S). Manjunath defeated Suresh. Reacting to Kumaraswamy's statement that Shivakumar who did nothing for Channapatna so far but was now visiting the constituency, the DCM asked, How does he (Kumaraswamy) know that I have done nothing for Channapatna? Before Kumaraswamy saw Channapatna, I had seen it. He came to politics very late. He came 10 years after I entered politics. I came in 1985 and had contested against his father (former prime minister H D Deve Gowda) in the assembly polls. Kumaraswamy came in 1995 or 96 and contested for Parliament. I'm from that district, he added.

Activists protest mining activities in Sandur

Ballari: Environmentalists and activists are gearing up for a large-scale movement to stop mining activities in Sandur, despite recent interventions by the state government. Last week, Union Minister for Steel and Heavy Industries HD Kumaraswamy approved the commencement of mining by Kudremukh Iron Ore Company Limited (KIOCL) in Devadari, Sandur taluk. However, Forest and Ecology Minister of Karnataka Eshwar Khandre instructed officials to withhold the land transfer due to complaints about KIOCL's non-compliance with the Central Empowered Committee (CEC) directives. While this move provides temporary relief, many activists believe it is not enough. They are organizing a massive campaign in August to demand a permanent halt to mining in the region. Sreeshaila Aladhalli, Vice President of the Samaj Parivartana Samudaya warned that mining remains a significant threat to the region's rich biodiversity and thick forest cover. This (Eshwar Khandre's directive) is a temporary relief for us. However, mining is definitely a threat to the region. The government should not allow mining. It is a rich biodiversity area with a thick forest. Neela Kuriji also grows in the region, Aladalli stated. He said that a massive movement is being planned for August, uniting various organizations and activists to send a strong message to the government. Senior activist SR Hiremath and others who have voiced against mining in the past are expected to participate in the campaign. The Socialist Unity Centre of India (Communist) party, which staged a protest in Ballari on Monday, has also called for a united front against the mining operations. SUCI(C) district committee member A Devadas highlighted the detrimental effects of mining, citing previous violations by KIOCL in the Kudremukh area. The mining will neither benefit the people nor the government. It would also cause immense damage to the people, agriculture, and ecology. We have seen how KIOCL worked in the Kudremukh area. Therefore, the government should not allow mining here, Devadas said. Devadas further questioned the governments decision to permit KIOCL to mine 470 hectares in Devadari Betta, which would necessitate the felling of over 99,000 trees. He urged the government to consider the forest departments earlier recommendations against new mining in Devadari Gudda-Swamimalai areas. We will shortly contact all the like-minded people and fight against this mining, he added.

'No sexual intent': Bombay HC grants bail to man accused of stripping, assaulting minor boys

MUMBAI: The Bombay High Court has granted bail to a 33-year-old man accused of assaulting three minor boys on their private parts on suspicion of being thieves, noting that there was no sexual intent involved in the case. A single bench of Justice Anil Kilor, in an order dated June 21 and made available on Monday, granted bail to Kapil Taak. The court noted that the case pertained solely to physical and mental torture. Taak was arrested in 2021 on charges of unnatural offence, assault, and criminal intimidation under the Indian Penal Code, as well as for sexual assault under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act. Karnataka HC reduces life sentence in POCSO case; cites lack of justification for maximum penalty Taak and the other accused allegedly stripped the three teenage boys, assaulted them with leather belts, inserted fingers into their anus, and applied balm to their private parts. Taak is also accused of filming the incident on a mobile phone. After going through the FIR and the allegations made in the FIR against the applicant, prima facie nothing is brought on record to show that there was any sexual intent, the bench stated. The bench emphasised that the case involved physical and mental torture meted out to the minor victims as Taak and the other accused believed the victims were thieves. Taak's advocate Sana Khan argued that the provisions of the POCSOA would not apply in this case as there was no sexual intent. She pointed out that Taak had been languishing in jail since 2021, and a chargesheet in the case has already been filed. The complaint against Taak and others was lodged by the mother of one of the minor victims in April 202 after she noticed some people watching a video where some minor boys were being assaulted and abused in their private parts. The woman identified one of the boys as her son. As per the complaint, the accused persons had forced the boys to accompany them from a local market and taken them to a secluded spot where they were assaulted.
